Summary

Francesca Clark-Bartlett, wife of the American Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, seeks more power than she already has. Meanwhile, the attractive yet naive Melissa Iverson wishes she had never inherited her family's vast fortune.

After they both become entangled with a 44-year-old, womanizing British intelligence agent, the two women find themselves in a web of deception and mystery. Threatening letters, dark family secrets and connections to persons of power all tell them that the path they tread is wrought with danger.

Daniel Kemp's Once I Was A Soldier is a thriller brimming with international intrigue, and a story of poignant self-reflection.

Amazing story teller!

This book was great, the narrator is what really makes you get into what really is going on! The emotion that is given while he speaks is better than what my mind would have sounded like if I had read the book myself! I enjoy listening to stories and reading them. This is a great audiobook to listen to, take a listen!

Excellent!!

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the Audiobook: "Once I Was A Soldier". The story was captivating, but what I especially enjoyed was the British narrator ‘s voice. His British accent, pauses in just the right places, and cadence made me feel like I was right there, and I was totally immersed in the story. For me, the narrator was the "frosting on the cake"!
Congratulations to Daniel Kemp and his narrator, John Gowing tor creating a winner of an audio book!! Can't wait to hear the next one!!

The right mix

This book just worked for me. It had just the right mix of lot, action, character development, sexy times and humor. All supported snd brought to life by a well-fitting narrator!

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for a review. (But I do a number of these and few get five stars!)
